Deputy Head of Primary (Academic)

My name is James Hornby and I am very excited about the new school year ahead. Originally, I am from England and studied Geography at Loughborough University before completing my PGCE at St. Martin’s College in Ambleside, Cumbria and then an MA in Outdoor and Environmental Education Management at Liverpool John Moores University. I taught at schools in Leicester and Yorkshire for 9 years before the opportunity arose to teach at an international school in Cairo, Egypt. During my time living and teaching in Egypt, I explored the desert and also developed a passion for the underwater world through scuba diving. Before relocating to Thailand, my previous teaching post was in Vietnam where I worked at a large international school in Saigon for 9 years. My experience in education has taught me that it is very important to understand that individuals learn in different ways, enjoy different things and achieve differently and at different rates. By providing a safe yet challenging learning environment where the children are not afraid to ‘have a go’ and make mistakes, we can ensure that the children thrive and develop as learners and individuals. Outside of the classroom, apart from spending as much time as possible underwater, I enjoy distance running and rugby, support Liverpool FC and love exploring new places with my wife Nguyen and daughter Jessica - who is incredibly excited about returning to school and seeing all her friends again.
